How to Choose the Right Bedroom Windows

There are three main factors that affect the quality of your sleep – light, sound and comfort –  and your choice of windows and doors contribute to all three of these factors. Of course, your sheets, pillows and mattress are all vital items for a good night’s sleep, but it’s also important to focus on the whole room itself to create a relaxing atmosphere for you and your loved ones.

How to Choose the Right Bedroom Windows

Lights Out

Bedroom windows should tread that delicate balance between allowing the sunlight in to wake you up gently in the morning and shielding the space against outdoor sources of lights that could keep you up all night. Ask your window and door contractors which styles fill this purpose adequately. For example, a double-hung window can be a safe choice, combining operability and the manageable light transmission while you want to avoid picture windows at all costs.

Quiet Time

Jarring noises can jolt someone up from even the deepest of slumbers. Consider noise-canceling glazing options for your window to promote a healthier environment.


You will not choose entry doors the same way you choose windows for your bedroom. If you live in an area where you could comfortably leave the windows open and let the cool nighttime breeze ventilate your room, you have to stick to operable windows like sliding and casement windows.
